Free Tesla Supercharging is Back

Tesla brings back unlimited free supercharging for the Tesla Model X and Tesla Model S.

Tesla announced via its Twitter account on August 3 that free unlimited supercharging was back for its new Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X, but not for the Tesla Model 3.

Free unlimited supercharging has been on a rocky road over the last couple of years and was terminated last year. Back in 2018, Elon Musk said of free supercharging that it wasn’t sustainable as production volume grew, didn’t “incent optimal behavior” and should have been cancelled sooner.

The Tesla Model X and Model S have been struggling to reach their sales targets in the wake of the new Model 3, anticipation for the upcoming Porsche Taycan and the lack of any significant improvements or redesigns. Tesla is likely trying to encourage sales by adding free supercharging to the Model X and S offer.
